This event, the equivalent of an exhibition
in the US Capitol, marked the formal launch of this powerful and
dramatic depiction of the suffering of the North Korean people.
Plans were also drawn up to continue the Exhibition
elsewhere in Seoul following the three days at the National Assembly,
and then throughout the world.
The exhibition included hundreds of photos,
letters, diaries, models, and artifacts by and from refugees and
NK people. Over the past ten years, many have risked their lives
to collect these materials.
One featured item was a large, 160 x 320 cm
painting titled "Death and Despair" by a Korean-French
artist, Oh Chun-yong, at the Exhibition.
In addition, Jim Butterworth and Lisa Sleeth
graciously agreed to have their documentary film, "Seoul
Train" screened at the Exhibition.
A full schedule of eyewitness accounts, lectures
and speeches were presented at the three-day exhibition.
